Apple’s New iPad, which was introduced by the company on March 7 in USA, is now available in India for Rs 36,799. Indian online retailer Tradus.in has listed the new iPad 16 GB, WiFi model for Rs 36,799 after discount of Rs 3191. So it is fair to assume that the official price of the New iPad will be around Rs 39,990.
The New iPad comes with Retina Display and better hardware than its predecessors. Apple has even managed to sell about three million units of the tablet in eleven different countries within first three days of launch. Interestingly, India was nowhere on the charts for availability in second phase.
The new Apple iPad comes with 9.7-inch touchscreen Retina Display supporting higher resolution 2048×1536 pixel resolution. The tablet is slightly thicker and bit heavier than its predecessor. This tablet houses Apple A5X mobile processor and features a better 5 megapixel camera at the back for recording full HD video.
Apple had launched iPad 2 in India starting Rs 29,500. Apple’s pricing has always surprised everyone and the company has taken active steps to offer better pricing in India. However, this time we are not sure if Apple would be introducing the 4G LTE supporting models in India any time soon.
We consider this product listing as early bird price to pay for getting the hands on the tablet first. With the heavy demand of the New iPad in several countries, it will not be a surprise to use if the tablet comes to India by the end of second quarter this year.
